Today's results make Marco look very little indeed.

Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic primary in Nebraska kinda surprises me. It's a good surprise, though.

Why does it surprise you?

Mainly just 'cause from my experience when living there, the people who were Democratic were a little more moderate/centrist (I know there's moderate Democrats elsewhere that like him, of course, but I didn't know if some people still bought into the "he's a little too far to the left" attitude). That, and many people still have fond memories of Bill Clinton in this general area of the country, from what I've seen, and so Hilary gets support by default.

I just imagine the only liberal populations there to be in Lincoln by the university (young) or in Omaha. I've never actually been, but a lot of colleagues tend to be from there. Maybe that's my bias.

Yeah, when I lived there we lived just a little ways away from both of those cities. The actual town I lived in was a more conservative one, but much of the liberal attitudes I came across were from people who lived in one of those cities.

But then again, I've lived in small towns in other states that had liberal pockets in them, so...who knows?

This could be the turning point in his campaign.

Me too PhilsFan. I used to be a conservative due to the influence of my uncle and grandfather. When I was becoming more interested in politics around middle school I was reading books by Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. But as I got more into politics and began learning more about this nation and its history I began to realize how wrong I was. Since then I've changed my views a lot as I've listened to different perspectives on issues.

To be fair, I called anyone who loses respect for somebody who appreciated immediate aid for his constituents who were in life threatening situations to be an asshole.

That would be a group attack, not a personal one. And it's not really an attack if it's true. Cause it is.

Lose respect for Christie over bridge-gate? OK.

Lose respect for him changing his moderate views to try and pander to the far right? OK.

Lose respect for Christie for sidiling on up to Donald Trump just to spite Marco Rubio? OK.

Lose respect for Christie over his response to Hurricane Sandy? For fucks sake no. It's the best thing he ever did as governor, and showed true leadership; as he put what was best for the people of New Jersey in front of any bullshit political affiliation.

It's the same in Oklahoma and Kansas. Along with Nebraska, all three are solidly Red states (often with conservative Democrats). Throw in Iowa and Colorado, which are more purple states but you could say Bernie has kicked ass in the old "Big 12" primary.

I miss the old Big 12.

Rubio disintegrating. Cruz "surging." Trump yet to win 50% in any state.

Such a disaster for the GOP.

Donald Trump credited himself for Bernie Sanders winning some states on Super Tuesday.

I guess all his attacks on Hillary helped.
